Sport technology


From GPS watches to heart rate monitors, we put the latest sport technology through its paces.

Polar RCX5
The Polar RCX5 is not just a mere watch. It calls itself a “fitness computer” and it lives up to its name by analysing your statistics on the move to help you get the most out of your fitness sessions. It all starts by monitoring one particular marvel of technology - your heart.
Garmin Forerunner 610
The Garmin Forerunner 610 is the best sport watch we have reviewed to date. This versatile, responsive, accurate and well-designed watch is aimed at the high end of the market and has a price tag to match. We would love to see a faster charge time and a waterproof casing but, put simply, this is the best GPS sport watch on the market today.
Nike+ SportWatch
We run the Paris Marathon with the Nike+ SportWatch and test it against the Garmin Forerunner 410. The SportWatch is a simple yet effective sport watch which tracks your time, pace and route easier than models twice the price. While not flawless in its performance, it's a reliable piece of sport kit for runners of all abilities.
Fitbit Ultra 8
A new year? A new you? Can this wireless tracker help you get off the couch?
Motorola Motoactv
First look: A GPS fitness tracker and music player which outpaces the competition and will get sport watch manufacturers sweating.
Garmin Forerunner 410
A premium GPS sport watch which will help you get fit, stay fit and train longer and harder. Excellent for athletes of all abilities across multiple sports, this watch has all the features you'd expect and has a customisable display.
Garmin Forerunner 210
The Garmin Forerunner 210 has everything most runners would want from a GPS sport watch, without much of the on-screen customisation appreciated by very demanding runners with more money to spend. For those not enticed by analysis paralysis, this is an impressive device and a valuable training aid for athletes of all abilities.
Garmin Forerunner 405
Once past the initial stage of learning, Garmin's Forerunner 405 provides a wealth of facilities to help you monitor and guide your fitness training on foot or bike.
Garmin Forerunner 301
If you want to be able to judge your performance no matter what activity you’re doing, this little box of tricks is invaluable.
Polar FT80 + G1 Fitness Computer
If you're serious about improving, maintaining or maximising your fitness level, the FT80 will help you every step of the way.
Jabra Sport
Wireless calls become a reality for music-fuelled athletes with this Bluetooth headset.
